10/10 absolutely incredible.

I grew up in Waterford and never knew the Bear Mountain Inn hosted weddings, so when we went for a tour, we parked the car, and I knew immediately how special this place was. BMI is a hidden gem of a place. The grounds are beautiful (the view of Bear Pond, the large lawn, the surrounding trees, Bear Mountain on your left, recently renovated inn, everything!) and the staff is incredible! Cassie was always very quick to respond to all of my emails. I wasn't worried once I got on site the Friday before. And that's HUGE. Everyone was welcoming and so pleasant! Cassie, Jessica, Jericha, the bartenders, etc. I HIGHLY recommend hosting your wedding with BMI. It was GORGEOUS but I also felt extremely supported by the staff. The breakfast each morning was so delicious and all the rooms have a level of warmth and coziness. We stayed in the Sugar Maple Cottage which was SO great to be able to sneak away for a moment to collect ourselves from the chaos that comes with weddings! I can't rave about BMI enough. We had our ceremony at the overlook, then we had dinner in the tent, and then the reception in the barn. It was so cool to have a venue with multiple settings so our guests didn't feel stuck in one room the entire day! Cassie, Jessica, Jericha, THANK YOU. From the bottom of our hearts! The day was PERFECT and we could not be happier.

Best Decision We Could Have Made

This review is a long time coming. Partially because I can't believe our special weekend is over (we got married 10/07/23), but also because I needed to figure out how to sum up the experience and utter bliss Jess, Nick, and the whole Bear Mountain Crew provided. First I would like to say, my husband and I decided to have an out of state wedding which required so much research but when we first signed our contract with the prior owners Brian and Julie, we simply couldn't believe the space. It had everything we could have ever imagined. A beautiful historic barn, incredible views, a shimmering lake, home baked welcome cookies, it was cozy and charming and somehow felt like home from the first moment we stepped foot on the property. When the inn was sold, to be honest at first we were extremely nervous. Would it feel the same? Would we be able to still execute the way we intended? So many questions, especially for an out of state wedding. From the jump, Jess and Nick as well as Cassie (the inn's wedding coordinator) made all of our worries melt away. The lengths they went to ensure we felt supported was truly incredible. The most amazing thing is, they did this from the bottom of their hearts, it surpassed any form of fleeting customer service. They treated us like family, and with how many weddings and events they have in a year, it is truly incredible they always went the extra yard, even when it wasn't anticipated or expected. They exceeded the contractural promises, and having Nick as our caterer for some of our events (rehearsal dinner and brunch) it made it even more special. We had rain the morning of our wedding, and up until that point I convinced myself weather was not going to be a thing. Even with this scenic change, they did an immaculate job transforming the spaces to fit our needs and the flow we were looking for, and honestly it was more beautiful than we could have wished for. I was so nervous with the rain, as we had a lot of guests and had a separate tent for dinner, the staff was even outside in the rain with umbrellas for anyone moving from the barn to the tent. Everyone said it was the best wedding they had ever been to, even with the rain, and that is a direct result of the care and dedication of Jess and Nick and the standard/expectation they uphold. If you have the opportunity, I highly suggest a holiday weekend, especially if it is an out of state wedding. The day after the wedding we were able to soak it all in and it will forever go down in our book as the best way to have everyone we love together in an intimate space since the whole inn was just ours, moments frozen in time. We are forever grateful for Jess and Nick and the whole Bear Mountain team. I could go on forever about the special little shining moments that made it magical. Now that we are married, we have a place that will forever be a part of our story that we can visit and one day (hopefully haha) show our kids. Thank you will never be enough, and I believe this was the best decision we could have ever made for our wedding.

Best Maine Wedding Venue!

We had the most magical day & weekend here at the Bear Mountain Inn! We wanted to celebrate our relationship for an entire weekend, and the inn really provided that. We had the most amazing time the whole weekend, celebrating our love with all our favorite people. All the staff was so welcoming, helpful, and kind throughout our whole experience. They answered any and all of my questions and helped make our wedding day our dream come true! This venue was a perfect combo of rustic & elegant, and allowed for any and all fun personalized details. Would recommend for any loving couple to tie the knot!
